Where we stand

Few regions in the world can match Seattle’s current growth and prosperity. But accompanying our good fortune are great challenges, including the widening disparities between rich and poor. Such inequities weaken the vibrancy of our community. Philanthropy can—and must—step in. Using our philanthropic expertise, deep roots in the community and network of partners, Seattle Foundation develops targeted strategies to quicken the pace of progress toward a stronger community for all.

We are an agent of change. Every day, we convene, communicate with and catalyze our philanthropic partners to advance this ideal, uniting passion and discipline to create lasting impact.

Our mission is to ignite powerful, rewarding philanthropy to make Greater Seattle a stronger, more vibrant community for all.
